USMNT ace Brenden Aaronson will not travel to Mexico
The 21-year-old player will miss the final batch of World Cup qualifiers in CONCACAF after suffering a knee injury during pre-game warm-up with Salzburg last weekend.
The United States men’s national team have been dealt a major blow before the start of the final batch of World Cup qualifiers in CONCACAF with the news that Brenden Aaronson has been ruled out due to a knee injury. The 21-year-old got injured on Sunday during the pre-game warm-up ahead of RB Salzburg and Wolfsberg.
Aaronson was scheduled to make the trip to Houston to join squad on Monday and undergo a medical examination to determine the severity of the injury. He then stayed with Salzburg and the bad news was confirmed, with the MRI showing a slight tear in the MCL and he is set to be sidelined for between three and six weeks, but won’t require surgery.
